Your Laurier Web Portal to CSASM


The Laurier CSASM is a forum for academics, students, business and industry to exchange ideas in order to facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration in the area of computational science and applied & statistical modelling, and to help train high quality and employable students. 

It is  a seminar series that covers all areas of applied, industrial, and financial mathematics; computational physics, chemistry, and biology; mathematical, statistical, and computational models and tools as applied  in natural and social sciences, engineering, business and economics, the areas where a substantial progress is possible due to Computational Science and Applied & Statistical Modlling.

Towards Laurier Centenary

The most extensive computation known has been conducted over the last billion years on a planet-wide scale: it is the evolution of life. The power of this computation is illustrated by the complexity and beauty of its crowning achievement, the human brain. --David Rogers

The whole history of physics proves that a new discovery is quite likely lurking at the next decimal place. --F.K. Richtmeyer

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. --Marcel Proust

Mathematical modeling is about rules - the rules of reality. What distinguishes a mathematical model from, say, a poem, a song, a portrait or any other kind of 'model', is that the mathematical model is an image or picture of reality painted with logical symbols instead of with words, sounds or watercolors. --John Casti
